Jennifer O’Brien

photo_jennJennifer entered the corporate world in 1983. As an office manager for an electronics manufacturer’s representative and then at a large apartment complex, Jennifer’s natural customer service skills became invaluable. In 1985, she began working for a large Overland Park corporation and experienced a wide variety of positions ranging from file clerk to project manager. Following the birth of her daughter in 1998, she successfully negotiated a telecommuting arrangement that allowed her to work from home while still managing a full time position as an Applications Engineer. This opportunity allowed Jennifer’s superior communication, organization and prioritization skills to shine.

After a very successful 19+ year career with the same company, “corporate” decided she couldn’t possibly be productive unless in the office so she abandoned that nonsense and gratefully partnered with her former boss working as an independent consultant.

That was 2004 and today, Jennifer enjoys speaking with everyone who calls and responds to anyone who utilizes email – from the comfort of her home office! She likes delving into and even creating new business processes and is set on streamlining anything and everything possible. She is engaged in the Greenleaf website and is consistently looking for ways to enhance the business.

Jennifer holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing Management from Park University (magna cum laude). She has been playing piano since the age of 5 and is currently a pianist and worship planner/leader at an area church. She enjoys taking dance classes at the same studio she attended some 30 years ago and where her daughter now dances. Jennifer was born and raised in the Northland and resides there today with her husband and daughter.

The best part of her job, in Jennifer’s own words: Landscaping or landscape maintenance is typically not a need but rather a want. I feel incredibly blessed that in this time when people spend much of their day doing what they need to do, I can be even a very small part of something they want to do.
